Cassandra takes an LGBTQ-specific look at the stories of greed and control we often find in the Four of Pentacles.
In this card, collaboration is queen. Brick by brick we are building a better world. Little by little, the people in charge are noticing. Piece by piece we are covering up the scars that our kyriarchy has left on it’s individuals.
That is balance, taking the bad with the good and learning to find the funny story or the warm hug in the middle of it all.
This card is a good omen and a great opportunity, and it’s for sure assuring you that NOW is the time to put down roots.
